You'll see what I'm gonna do when its all done! Hey! Another update!
Check it check it check it out!! Its watercooling time guys and gals!! READ:
First and foremost, the motherboard I have does NOT have a chipset waterblock set made already like most of the popular Asus/EVGA boards, etc...
So I had to find some blocks that would fit. I found a good NB block, and a Mosfet that would fit close enough... but needed some slight modifications (I needed two mosfet blocks to make it work).
Like always, pictures speak for themselves... so Here. We. Go.
Meet the mosfet:
Ouch it doesn't fit against those caps...
Those bumps? Thats why it doesn't fit...
Bumps all gone now! (with the help of my hand dandy flat sander!)
And it fits!!!...
OH DANG... its short by 1/4in.!! what to do what to do!!!
Thats why I got two blocks....
What the heck are you doing parker....
Nasty file work... what are you doing???
Oh okay..... what?
Whats under that wood!??!
Whoa dude! Its Arctic Silver 5 Opoxy Paste!!
Did you just seriously extend a mosfet block??
Snug as a bug in a rug? You betcha! The block is one solid piece now and fits perfectly on the board.
Next we have the NB block. This is a lot simpler.
It would go right there... oh wait... I don't need 4 screw holes.
So I cut off the two extra screw holes, AND I shaved off a bit of the delrin to fit around some caps...
Would ya look at that! With a little bit of reverse engineering and innovation with a little bit of creative thought, I now have my own custom waterblock set for this board.
What do you guys think so far? Comments/Suggestions/Criticism?
